How Are You Unique?


A couple of months ago I was out riding my bike, and I found this letter in a puddle.  I guess it had been raining back then too!  Seems like it's been raining forever where I live!  Anyway, I fished the paper out of the puddle and brought it home to dry.  I know it is valuable to someone but I have no idea where to find them.

It's hard to read, I know.  It appears to be a school assignment:  to write about why you are unique.  Here is what a little girl wrote:

"I am unique because my eyes are three colors...blue, green, and gray.
  I am unique because I can make people laugh and I like to laugh. 
 I am one who loves my dog Roxie.  I am one who dislikes when Sandy, my other dog, fights Roxie and when my brother's mean. 
 I am unique because I can cheerlead and draw penguins really good. 
That's why I am unique."

To me this is priceless.  I'm not throwing it away any time soon.  We all get so focused on all that needs to be done everyday, meeting other people's needs, being productive, and on and on.  Maybe it would be a good idea to take just a moment and think what you would have written about yourself.  Not your children, not your wife or husband, or friend.  Just you.  How are you unique?
